I first met George Rodriguez over a year ago when I went to him for help with anxiety and depression because I wasn't allowed to see a specialist without his prior consultation. I told the nurse about what I had been experiencing and shortly after George entered and was filling out a prescription, which he then handed to me before the door even closed and sent me on my way. He never gave a psychological evaluation or spoke with me personally. Later that year after I had a depressive reaction to the medication he prescribed, I was diagnosed as bipolar from another doctor. I reached out to him today (8-26-2020) to ask for an excuse from being forced to wear a mask as it has been exacerbating my anxiety, causing panic attacks and hyperventilation. He told me that he was not able to make a decision without consultation from psychologist or psychiatrist, even though he previously diagnosed my mental illness as requiring antidepressants. He suggested unnecessary tests to bill my insurance

Awful- does not care- does not listen- only tries to order unnecessary work to bill insurance. The worst doctor I have ever had. Did I mention incompetent.

Dr. Rodriguez has been my physician for many years. Fortunately my health is excellent for my age, so I typically visit him only for routine physical exams. I have always found Dr. Rodriguez to be attentive, thorough, and very personable. He is very competent and has an excellent reputation. My wait time for the appointment was less than 15 seconds, and the attending staff and nurse were pretty terrific, really! All-in-all, a very positive experience.
